    That's strange its not unavailable when I go to Axminster's site I even got one in the basket, It may be worth a call to them to find out why, I hope that they aren't breaking European competitions rules!!

    I have both VL 300 and VL 100
    The VL 300 came with a 1 metre extension that I have only used once, too long for my shed.
    I have plans to make a swing away tail stock.

    Not sure now but a couple years ago it was cheaper to buy a VL 300 in the UK that it was in Aust.

    You can add an extension on both sides.

    Well !
    After careful consideration, I prefer Bezombes.
    it is this lathe that will accompany me over the next few years. :)
    a big investment, which I now look forward to.
    this will be my fourth round.
    the first one was in Chinese which I got my hands on.
    the second a used Vivamac db800 without variator that I did not like (lack of precision)
    the third for 12 years a VL100 BM that I equipped with a motor and variator, model acquired before Vicmarc subcontracting of Vicmarc in Taiwan .... too bad.
    And let's go for a new adventure: cheer: with the Bezombes.
    It is ordered, two months for the manufacture, it will be necessary to be patient

    Hope that you are happy with it.
    Send photographs when you get it installed.

    I hope it hasn't always been
    but there, no surprise, it is the best.
    You have to wait two months for the production, and after that, happiness!
    I will send you pictures.
